On the occasion of the Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution (1821-2021) the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens organize an online International Conference that will be held on March 12-13, 2021. The conference is entitled: «The Greek Revolution in the Age of Revolutions (1776-1848). Reappraisals and Comparisons».

The conference, which is held with the kind sponsorship of Piraeus Bank, is one of the multifaceted actions of the cooperation between N.K.U.A. and Piraeus Bank, in the framework of the participation of both Institutions in the Bicentennial anniversary events.

The Bicentennial of the Greek Revolution (1821-2021) offers the opportunity to revisit and rethink many of the issues raised and fought over in the critical period of political and social upheaval and ideological change that has been canonized in historiography as the ‘Age of Revolution’ extending from 1776 to 1848. Reappraising the Greek revolutionary experience and comparing it with other revolutionary movements across Europe at the time can provide insights into the revolutionary phenomenon and the character of the ‘Age of Revolutions’ that might prove useful and suggestive in understanding parallel forms of collective mobilization and change world-wide.

The participants’ scientific papers in the conference will form the basis for the a collective volume to be published in 2021 by Routledge, the world 's leading publications in the humanities and social sciences, and will be one main activities of the University's celebration.
